The default fcl files for anatree set the 'Cry' module label as generator. There is nothing wrong with this as this is definitely the standard for all generator stages.
The problem arises when trying to run anatree over overlay files. In a nut shell, the overlay generates BNB neutrinos,stores them with 'generator' label in the ART file and then, to avoid collisions, runs and saves corsika with the 'corsika' label.

This setup means that the standard_anatree_sbnd.fcl fcl file stores neutrino information in the cosmic ray leafs when running an overlay.

I don't think that it's possible to fix this problem with one anatree fcl file alone. I propose that we make a production fcl file (so one that lives in the fcl folder used for the MC productions) with a suitable file name and with the correct label definitions. I can then make the MCP XML production scripts pick up the correct anatree fcl file for overlay jobs.

I'm marking this as urgent due to using overlays in the SBN workshop next week.

#1 Updated by Dominic Brailsford over 2 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Closed

Fixed in commits 87bc89a3 and 25b59d4f

There now exists a production level fcl file for corsika+genie overlay anatree and the XML production scripts should pick this up via an MCCSTATEMENT added to the generator-level fcl file.
